Rohingya rape victims: A time of retrospection for Muslims

1397/2/29 | 04:34
As a weapon of war, rape is used to orchestrate sexual violence as a way to impose the most extreme humiliation on victims. In August last year, a brutal ethnic cleansing campaign by Myanmar’s army displaced hundreds of thousands of Rohingya from Rakhine state. Extensive testimonies from survivors sheltering in Bangladesh’s refugee camps described the systemic rape and killings. Among the many rape victims are those whose babies will be born this month, according to aid groups preparing for a spate of births and abandoned infants. With ...

China tries to brainwash Muslims in internment camps

1397/2/29 | 04:34
  Day after day, Omir Bekali and other detainees in far western China's new indoctrination camps had to disavow their Islamic beliefs, criticise themselves and their loved ones and give thanks to the ruling Communist Party. When Bekali, a Kazakh Muslim, refused, he was forced to stand at a wall for five hours at a time. A week later, he was sent to solitary confinement and deprived of food for 24 hours. After 20 days, he wanted to kill himself. The psychological pressure is enormous, when you have to criticise yourself, denounce your ...

'Monday massacre a day of shame for Muslims'

1397/2/27 | 04:34
  Iran’s Ambassador to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshroo says Israel's Monday massacre of innocent Palestinians is a "day of shame" for the Muslim world. Israeli forces killed at least 62 Palestinians during protests near the Gaza fence on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the Nakba Day (the Day of Catastrophe), which coincided this year with the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied city of Jerusalem al-Quds. "As these crimes and murders were being carried out, (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu and ...

Muhammad Bin Salman clear message to Muslims: Israel has right to defend her land

1397/1/14 | 04:34
  The crown prince and de facto leader of Saudi Arabia said Israel has a “right” to a homeland, a notable shift in the kingdom's position, in an interview published in The Atlantic on Monday. Saudi Arabia and Israel still have no formal diplomatic relations, but behind the scenes, improvements in their ties have accelerated in recent years. Both countries see Iran as their biggest outside threat and the United States (US) as their key ally, and both see danger from armed extremists. Israel's conflict with the Palestinians has long ...

Censoring innocent killings in Palestine: Is Pope Francis better than Muslim leaders?

1397/1/12 | 04:34
  Pope Francis, in his Easter address on Sunday, called for peace in the Holy Land two days after 15 Palestinians were killed on the Israeli-Gaza border, saying the conflict there "does not spare the defenceless". The pope made his appeal in his "Urbi et Orbi" (to the city and the world) message from the central balcony of St. Peter's Basilica to tens of thousands of people in the flower-bedecked square below where he earlier celebrated a Mass. He also appealed for an end to the "carnage" in Syria, calling for humanitarian aid to be allowed ...

Full-scale genocide in Myanmar; 10,000 Rohingya Muslims were killed in a month

1396/12/25 | 04:34
  According to “Doctors Without Borders”, in only one month, 10,000 Rohingya Muslims were killed due to the violence of the Myanmar Army in Rakhine. The organization reported that within a month (August 25 to September 24, 2017), nearly 9,400 Rohingya Muslims have lost their lives and the Myanmar Army is responsible directly for the death of 6,700 one of them. According Anatolian news agency, at least 730 children under the age of five were also killed in the same period of time. Doctors Without Borders’ medical information indicates ...

'Punish a Muslim' Game Spreads Across U.K. in Letters

1396/12/22 | 04:34
Ominous letters are being sent anonymously around the U.K. urging people to participate in a macabre game called “Punish a Muslim,” which awards points for doing things like burning down a mosque or throwing acid on a Muslim person. The letters were sent in plain white envelopes to at least six communities in England, including East London and other regions with a large Muslim population. “Are you a ‘sheep’ like the vast majority of the population? Sheep follow orders and are easily led, they are allowing the white majority nations ...

Suffering in silence

1396/12/17 | 04:34
  The collective global silence over the unending misery of Rohingya Muslims is not only deafening but also alarming. A recent assessment of the situation by a UN envoy tells us that Myanmar has systematically continued their campaign of terror and forced starvation against the Rohingya Muslims. Members of the minority community are being forcibly starved in a bid to quietly squeeze them out of the country. According to Amnesty International, many of those Rohingya Muslims now fleeing Myanmar are doing so out of hunger. This is not entirely ...

Why Saudi Arabia supports holocaust?

1396/11/10 | 04:34
The views of a majority of the Muslim world’s scholars have never been supportive of Israeli regime-supported Holocaust story. The views of a majority of the Muslim world’s scholars have never been supportive of Israeli regime-supported Holocaust story, Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Issa the head of the Muslim World League, an NGO based in Mecca, in unusual comments said on Saturday that the Holocaust was the Nazis’ crime that shocked the humanity. He added that it brought aftermaths, and no fair man in his right mind and can deny it. The ...

Muslims to get self-rule to avoid another bloody separatist war in the Pilippines

1396/11/5 | 04:34
    Muslims on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines may soon be granted self-rule, allowing them to govern themselves independently. The government of strongman President Rodrigo Duterte is devising strategies to end Islamist militancy in the country and prevent separatism.   On Monday, Duterte pledged to fast-track legislation that would give autonomy to Mindanao, a volatile region that has been under martial law for nearly 8 months. In May, Rebels allied with the Islamic State captured the city of Marawi, the commercial ...

Amnesty International urges probe after Myanmar’s Army admits its troops killed Muslims

1396/10/23 | 04:34
  Amnesty International has called for an independent investigation into rights abuses in Myanmar's Rakhine state after the country's army admitted its troops were involved in the murder of 10 Rohingya Muslims.   The remains of the victims were found in December in a mass grave outside Inn Din, a village in the Maungdaw township.   In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Min Aung Hlaing, the military’s commander in chief, said soldiers and villagers had confessed to killing 10 Muslims on September 2.   James Gomez, Amnesty’s ...

Myanmar admits massacre of Rohingya Muslims

1396/10/22 | 04:34
Amnesty International has strongly denounced the first admission by Myanmar's military that its soldiers executed Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine state, saying it is just the "tip of the iceberg". James Gomez, Amnesty’s regional director for Southeast Asia and the Pacific, said on Thursday that "this grisly admission is a sharp departure from the army's policy denial of any wrongdoing". "However it is only the tip of the iceberg and warrants serious independent investigation into what other atrocities were committed amid the ethnic cleansing ...

Appeasing Trump and Israel: How Saudia made OIC meeting an utter failure?

1396/9/25 | 04:34
  The OIC is not an organisation known for tackling the great questions of the day that confront Muslim states with any vision or alacrity.   However, during its emergency summit in Istanbul on Wednesday, there were some signs of life as the body raised its voice in reaction to Donald Trump’s ill-advised decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.     In the emergency summit convened by Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the final statement declared East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestinian state, ...

UK: “20,000 Muslim Terrorist Suspects

1396/9/22 | 04:34
  UK Prime Minister Theresa May—herself the target of a new Muslim terrorist assignation plot—has warned of a “right wing” danger to Britain, even though 90 percent of all terrorists in the UK are Muslim, and currently there are more than 20,000 Muslims under surveillance by authorities.   May’s ridiculous allegation that Britain faced a “right wing terrorist threat” was made in Jordan only a few days before UK police swooped on a Muslim pair, Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, and Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, for a plan ...

Muslims mull emergency meetings on Trump's move against al-Quds

1396/9/14 | 04:34
Jordan has initiated a diplomatic campaign to mobilize Arab and Muslim states against an expected US move to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel's capital. President Donald Trump reportedly plans to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of Israel in a speech on Wednesday in an apparent bid to offset his pledge to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city. A senior Jordanian diplomatic source said Amman, the current president of the Arab League, would invite members of the Arab summit and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation ...

Europe’s Muslim population projected to reach 76 million by 2050

1396/9/12 | 04:34
  Europe’s Muslim population will multiply and reach over 76 million by 2050 from the current 25 million. A revealing survey by Pew Research Center, ‘Europe’s Growing Muslim Population’, looks at the future of the 25.8 million Muslims currently residing in European countries. Citing a comprehensive swath of data, it is an attempt to see how the size of Europe’s Muslim population may change in the coming decades, depending on levels of migration. All three scenarios – zero, moderate and high – considered by researchers produced ...

Biblical Jihad

1396/8/2 | 04:34
  In the Zionist-controlled world, all terrorist false flags are boxed in Jihad by Muslims without even knowing the real meaning of Jihad in Islamic Shari’ah – challenging all acts of oppression.   This lie is kept alive by Zionist Jewish and Christian preachers, politicians and mainstream media to benefit of the Zionist entity – despite FBI report blamed Muslim extremists for carrying 6% of terrorist activities as compared to Jewish (7%) and the rest by Christians.   Following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, ...

Deadliest shooting: Why did US always shy to accept terrorism within society?

1396/7/13 | 04:34
  America suffered one of the deadliest shootings in history, with 59 dead in Las Vegas.   American authorities have shied away from calling the violence an act of terrorism, stating that it is too soon to gauge the culprit’s motives. This incident of white violence is a series of many attacks by non-Muslims and white supremacists where the forces-that-be have distanced from using the word terrorist and have refused to call a spade a spade.   What is unsettling about this is that attacks by Muslim or immigrant population ...

‘The military plan to wipe out all Muslims in Myanmar’

1396/7/8 | 04:34
  This village is a Muslim-free zone,” reads a sign hanging at the entrance to a village in an area of Myanmar outside Rakhine state.    The orders are directed at the country’s Rohingya population, an ethnic group of around 1.3 million that live mainly in Rakhine and who have been described as the “world’s most persecuted minority”.   It’s not difficult to see why. Since 1992 the Burmese government has imposed heavy restrictions on the Rohingyas. If they want to travel from one town to the other they have to ...

Bangladesh offers land to shelter Rohingya Muslims fleeing Myanmar

1396/6/21 | 04:34
  Bangladesh has agreed to free land for a new camp to shelter some of the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims who have fled recent violence in Myanmar, an official said Monday.   The new camp will help relieve some pressure on existing settlements in the Bangladeshi border district of Cox's Bazar, where 313,000 have arrived since Aug. 25, according to the United Nations.   "The two refugees camps we are in are beyond overcrowded," said U.N. refugee agency spokeswoman Vivian Tan.   Other new arrivals were being ...

Muslims in Iran, worldwide celebrate Eid al-Adha

1396/6/10 | 04:34
Muslims in Iran and across the globe are celebrating Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice), an important festival on the Islamic calendar which marks the climax of the annual Hajj pilgrimage. During the festivities, which fell on Friday this year, Muslims pay tribute to Prophet Ibrahim’s submission to the divine order of sacrificing his son. Trying to perform the act of ultimate abnegation, Ibrahim, however, was sent a sheep through Archangel Gabriel to sacrifice instead. Ibrahim’s obedience thus helped him pass the supreme test of subservience ...

‘Kill Muslims with bullets dipped in pig's blood’

1396/5/27 | 04:34
  US President Donald Trump has suggested that some Muslims should be executed with bullets dipped in pig's blood, hours after a deadly terror attack in Barcelona, Spain. "Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught," Trump tweeted Thursday afternoon. "There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!" Trump’s tweet referenced a dubious story about US Army General John Pershing’s handling of Muslim prisoners during the Moro Rebellion (1899–1913) in the Philippines. The rebellion was an armed ...

Saudis are after the Muslim brotherhood, and Turkey’s in the way

1396/4/17 | 04:34
    To listen to Donald Trump, speaking during his recent trip there, the Middle East splits neatly into opposing camps and it’s obvious which one harbors the good guys.   It didn’t take long for that notion to be publicly debunked. Within a couple of weeks of the president’s departure, a crisis over the Gulf state of Qatar had U.S. allies at loggerheads.     An alliance led by Saudi Arabia apparently enjoys Trump’s full support. And a second bloc looser and harder to classify, is at the heart of the dispute ...

Fazlur Rehman's advice to Kingdom:The United States fights Islam, not terrorism

1396/4/13 | 04:34
Head of Pakistan's Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam has stressed the war that the United States launched in the region under the pretext of fighting terrorism is actually against Islam and Muslims.   “Islamic countries should know that the United States intends to defame the face of Islam and Islamic States, not fighting terrorism,” Maulana Fazlur Rehman said yesterday in Islamabad, capital of Pakistan. Head of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam added Saudi Arabia should cut off relations with the United States and expand ties with Islamic world, because US ...

Muslims in Iceland fasting for 22 hours a fast

1396/3/23 | 04:34
    Short nights closer to the North Pole means that some Muslims in Iceland’s capital Reykjavik are fasting for nearly 22 hours during Ramadan, according to a local imam.   The north Atlantic island has around 1,500 Muslim residents and those observing Ramadan begin fasting at around 2 a.m. local time and do not sit down to their evening iftar meal until around midnight.   “Although the hours are long, the Muslims here do not feel it because they come together here,” Abdul-Aziz Ulvani, the imam at the Islamic ...

Muslims in New Delhi rally in protest against the crimes of Al-Khalifa and Al-Saud

1396/3/12 | 04:34
Indian Muslims, who were fasting, have gathered in front of the UN headquarters in New Delhi in protest the crimes of Al-Khalifa and Al-Saud for Killing people in Bahrain and Yemen.   According to reports from New Delhi, demonstrators chanted slogans like death to Al Khalifa, death to Al-Saud, death to America and Israel. They stressed Bahraini and Saudi security forces must stop the aggression. They declared that these actions promote sectarianism and violence in Muslim countries. Demonstrators showed their anger and hatred of committed ...

The conference of shame and disgrace

1396/3/3 | 04:34
The enemy of Islam and hater of Muslims visited the land of Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him), the prophet of Islam, and the land of the two holy mosques, to publically wage his war on Islam and Muslims in the company of the presidents, kings and emirs of Muslim countries who he drove, like cattle, from their countries. The man, who vowed, before his voters before the elections, to milk the cow until it goes dry and then kill it, referring to Saudi Arabia, visited the country. This American President, Donald Trump, who pledged, before the ...

Report documents evidence of attacks on Rohingya

1396/2/31 | 04:34
    A Rohingya advocacy group urged the government of Myanmar on Tuesday to cooperate with a UN fact-finding mission as it presents new evidence of attacks against Muslim civilians in western Rakhine state.   The London-based Burmese Rohingya Organization U.K. (BROUK) published a new report that contains evidence Rohingya have been targeted in an organized manner by state forces in northern Rakhine state during military operations since last October. “What is new about the material contained in this report is that it ...

Joke to the Muslims: Trump a servant of Allah, according to Saudi cleric

1396/2/17 | 04:34
A Saudi cleric has found himself in hot water after he publicly made a prayer for 'servant of Allah' Donald Trump to advance the interests of Muslims.   Saad bin Ghoniem said on Friday that he hoped God would take Trump under his wing and steer him in the right direction towards ending injustice against Muslims, prompting an online backlash.   "O Allah, Trump is one of your servants, you control him and his fate. Command him - willingly or not - to serve the best interests of Muslims and eliminate oppression done to them. Spare ...

Ibn Taymiyyah and 428 fatwa entitled “kill him/her if he did not repent”

1396/2/17 | 04:34
The school of thought that is the origin of the culture of hate and blind fanaticism among Muslims. The school of thought that is source of bleeding and brutal murder among Muslims and the pretext under which the most heinous crimes of history are being committed. Many believe it is not a good time to exhume the bodies, we must work towards the unity and avoid doing things that cause discord. This united community looks like to be without any disadvantages. It turns out that these murders and killings do not exist in the outside world and it ...

Trump’s Muslim ban: Obstinacy or Islamophobia?

1395/12/20 | 04:34
  States’ attorneys general, civil liberties groups and others are already lining up to challenge President Donald Trump’s revised ban on refugees and travelers from six mainly Muslim countries.   But can they succeed in overturning a measure that was deliberately crafted to remove the red flags raised by US courts over the first attempt? That may be more difficult.   The White House has rolled out a process that aims to avoid a repeat of the confusion caused by its first travel ban, imposed with no notice and little preparation ...

Quebec mosque attack: Was it a warning to Canada for accepting Muslims migrants?

1395/11/14 | 04:34
    At least six people were killed at the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Centre during evening prayers.      As usual, some authorities were slow to label this a ‘terrorist attack’ but the sincere Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau aptly called it so.     It is a tragedy that Canada, a country lauded for its peaceful dealings with immigrants and Muslims, despite some recent opposition in the recent past, has had to bear the Quebec mosque incident.   It seems that Trump’s hate policies are ...

Unleashed violence: A brief history of Burma’s atrocities against Muslims

1395/11/8 | 04:34
  The Burmese Muslims are facing tough times and their plight is terrible. They are being killed overtly without any reason.   They cannot get citizenship of Myanmar under the Citizenship Act of Burma 1982; their children cannot get admission to any school and even worse is that they cannot marry without the permission of the government.     The root cause of this scenario owes its origins to the Second World War when in 1941 Japan attacked Burma, where the Burmese Muslims supported Britain. Since then the Burmese Muslims ...

Nefarious designs: How Hilary Clinton planned the world war III

1395/11/5 | 04:34
  During their elections campaigns, Trump was considered more notorious for his biased and bigoted statements about Muslims and his extremist views about the world while Hilary Clinton was portrayed altogether different.   However things are not as they were portrayed. Infact during her election campaign Hilary Clinton had vowed that she will attack Iran if elected.     Given her track record in Libya, including famously being the architect behind overthrowing Libya such a position even raised more concerns.     This ...

Maligning Muslims: War of British Media on Islam

1395/11/4 | 04:34
  In a personal campaign for fairer coverage, one man has exposed scores of articles in the British press that misrepresent Muslims or Islam.   Since undertaking the project, Miqdaad Versi, the assistant general secretary of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), has forced newspapers to make 20 retractions and corrections.   A further 20 are currently under investigation by the press complaints body IPSO. One story Versi corrected had appeared in the Rupert Murdoch-owned Sun last week. The tabloid ran with the headline “SUPERMARKET ...

Rise in Muslim hate: West’s deliberate attempt to malign Islamism

1395/11/2 | 04:34
  New data from researchers at California State University, San Bernardino, shows that hate crimes against American Muslims increased by 78 percent over the course of 2015. There were 257 incidents of anti-Muslim bias in 2015, compared with 154 in the previous year.     The number is second only to the surge in hate crimes following the 9/11 attacks in 2001 when 481 incidents against Muslims were reported.     Most victims of the UK hate crimes were Muslim girls and women aged from 14 to 45 in traditional Islamic dress. The perpetrators ...

A loathsome enmity: Romanian new PM rejected for pro- Assad views

1395/10/9 | 04:34
  Romania's president has rejected the left-wing Social Democrats' candidate for prime minister, Sevil Shhaideh, who would have been the EU nation’s first female and Muslim prime minister.     The PSD, which has yet to comment on the issue, had put forward Shhaideh after its sweeping election victory on December 11 when it won 45 percent of the vote.   The website HotNews cited unnamed sources as saying the security services had “strongly cautioned” against Shhaideh’s nomination because of the closeness to the Assad regime ...

Trump’s first Salvo: What does Muslim registry mean for US Muslims

1395/10/3 | 04:34
    Tech giants Microsoft and IBM have said they would refuse to help create a registry of Muslim Americans under Donald Trump's presidency.     Mr Trump has previously discussed a potential religion-based register during the campaign.     Hundreds of individual workers from Silicon Valley and beyond have also signed a pledge on to say they would refuse to work on building a religious registry.     Concerns over a possible database of Muslims focused on a discussion between Trump ...

Alarming situation: Why Muslim refugees are rapidly converting into Christianity?

1395/9/21 | 04:34
    Across Germany small numbers of Muslim refugees are being baptized. But the reasons for why they change their faith are complicated.   Thousands of Muslim migrants are converting to Christianity after they arrive in Europe, raising concerns they are being carried out in a cynical attempt to gain asylum.   Muslim refugees have recently been taking the same step throughout Germany, where nearly 900,000 asylum seekers arrived in 2015. Church leaders have confirmed a notable, though not huge, trend upward, but have not ...

Trump’s security adviser: A real threat to Muslims and Islam

1395/9/4 | 04:34
  US president-elect Donald Trump famously said in a CNN interview last March that “Islam hates us.” In this light, his pick for national secuirty adviser is pitch perfect. etired lieutenant general Michael Flynn served as Trump’s national security adviser during the campaign and agreed Friday to continue on. Flynn, a registered Democrat, served as head of the US Defense Intelligence Agency before he was ousted in 2014. Since then, he’s been a brash critic of President Barack Obama and the national security establishment’s ...

The new man in White House: Is All Good for Muslim World?

1395/8/24 | 04:34
American Muslims and Arab-Americans woke up Wednesday morning with shock, fear, and a determination to tackle head-on the bigotry that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. This election has managed to cram all the Islamophobic sentiments of the last 15 years into the span of 15 months, and then morph them into one ugly thing. Donald Trump is largely to blame. He called for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims” entering the country until it became clear that the proposal was embarrassingly ill-conceived, only to be replaced by ...

Italy’s Islamophobia: Increasing discrimination against Muslims

1395/8/7 | 04:34
  Several hundred Muslims staged a protest prayer outside the Colosseum in Rome on Friday over what they see as unfair restrictions on their freedom to practise their faith in Italy. Organisers said they had called the demonstration following the recent closure on administrative grounds of five makeshift mosques. Many Italian Muslims suspect local authorities are responding to a climate of mistrust caused by recent Islamist attacks in Europe by closing down the places of worship on the grounds of easily resolved problems such as the number ...

Positive overtures or diplomatic move: Pakistan to attend moot in India

1395/8/7 | 04:34
 Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has confirmed that Pakistan will be attending the upcoming Heart of Asia conference scheduled to be held in India. Aziz on Monday confirmed Pakistan's participation during a press conference here, Dawn online reported. The Heart of Asia conference will be held during the first week of December in Amritsar, India.

An overturned ban: Can France compensate the damage done?

1395/6/9 | 04:34
 After a month of intense national scandal and heightened international outrage, France’s highest administrative court, the Conseil d’État, on Friday overturned the burkini ban in a coastal area of the south of France. Imposed in the name of secularism, perhaps France’s most sacred ideal, the highly controversial burkini bans — currently affecting 25 French towns and cities besides Villeneuve-Loubet, which the court primarily addressed — prohibit Muslim women from wearing full-bodied bathing suits designed to respect traditional ...

Pushing against the wall: Discriminating Muslims can be dangerous
